    Am I limited in the number of conditions I can set in a free account?

    Asked by zaccopp on March 25, 2012 at 04:14 PM

    I have set up a good number of conditions that worked in the begining, but when I got over 20 the script seemed to disregard most of the conditions.

    You can add as many new conditions as you wish. The issue you are having might be caused by conflicting conditions and may we kindly as you to check the existing conditions carefully.

    I have triple checked my conditions and can't see any conflicts. Simply put, I have fields for various information for up to 5 owners of an LLC.  If the client wants to form a business with 5 owners, they will select 5 from a drop down menu.  If 5 is selected, nothing needs to be hidden and I will gather info for Owner #1 through Owner # 5.  If, for example, the client selects 3 owners from the drop down menu, the information related to Owner # 4 and Owner # 5 should be hidden.  For some reason when the number of owners equals 3, only information related to Owner # 4 is hidden (an not Owner # 5's information).  The same thing happens for each response (i.e. if the number of owners equals 1, only information related to Owner # 2 is hidden and not #2 through 5).

    So I narrowed the problem down a bit.  When I start with if number = 1 then hide 5 & 4 & 3 & 2…everything works perfectly (ex: When I choose "1" the others disappear).  Then when I add if number = 2 then hide 5 & 4 & 3…the fields for 5 & 4 & 3 are no longer hidden when I choose "1" but yet works perfectly when "2" is selected.  It's almost like there is a perceived conflict??

    the

    perfectly when "2" is selected. Its almost like there is a perceived

    Hi zaccopp,

    I am with you here... getting too many hide/show conditions for different fields can be quite difficult to manage. But as my colleague Goldo previously mentioned, there is no limit on the conditions number as long as the logic is still followed.

    I have checked your form and tried to establish a connected logic to make it work for you, but due to numbers of fields (and I am not familiar with them since you created them) that need to be hidden/show on every condition, I got lost. What I did is pulled out an old similar form that have such conditions similar to yours.

    Please check this form  Rolling Sheet it has similar function to what you wanted.
    How it works.

    1. In Select Option choose Yes

    2. In Number of Option click on number 1-8

    Notice how the rolling show/hide fields moved according the condition. The condition is up to 8 only.
    You can clone this form and check the conditioned setup. You may even modify it according to your need.

    Hope this help. Should you require further assistance just post here.

    Thanks.

    I just made a form with over 100 conditions.  It sucked to make but it works.
